Allow Me To Introduce Myself, my name is Bianca

Mr and Mrs TortomoseHello! My name is Mrs. Bianca Tortomose! I make sure to add the MRS because I finally got married on September 13, 2014 after dating my now husband, Tommy, for 10 years! He said he had to wait to make sure I was the right girl… Apparently that took some time!

Mom and DaughterWe have a beautiful daughter named Gianna who was born on April 20, 2014 (of course I would have MY daughter on the biggest pot smoking day of the year!). It also happened to be Easter Sunday. Let’s just say my husband and I did things opposite of how your “supposed to” according to our very italian families by having a baby before marriage and we definitely got shit for it… We didn’t care, we love our beautiful baby girl more than anything so they obviously got over it. Having a child changed me in a way I can’t explain. I was a wild, hot tempered, stubborn and very impatient Italian female. My daughter made me realize that there is so many other things to enjoy in life and to let go of all the negativity that surrounded me. Most importantly she taught me patience, which is something I never thought would happen. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a little crazy and can be completely inappropriate at times, but thats just me I guess! I am also still tested of this new found patience from time to time but I must say, I handle it much better than ever before. We also have a very Lolaunique, spoiled and spunky Pomeranian/ Chiuhuahua mix named Lola who still is not quite fond of our daughter but she was the baby for 5 years before Gianna came along so what can I do. When I say she was the baby I’m not being sarcastic, I brought Lola everywhere with me, and once Gianna was born, in her eyes, her world got flipped upside down. I think she is warming up to her a little, at least when Gianna’s eating Lola likes her… But I think they will be best friends one day! 

I work as a hair stylist in Royal Oak, MI. I’ve been doing hair since 2006 and I still love every minute of it. I love the environment, the gossip, the flexibility, and of course always learning the top new trends! Outside of work, I love being outdoors. I enjoy traveling, cooking, making DIY creations, and just keeping myself busy overall. Be sure to read all of my DIY and tasty recipes that I share with you, a lot of helpful, time and money saving tips and tricks to make your life that much easier! Family is also very important to me. My husband and I are close to both our families and we have been taught some great traditions, knowledge, and respect through them. We both love learning about our families history and I want my children to experience all the same family traditions and knowledge that we were able to.

Big Sister AnnouncementI found out I was pregnant again in January 2015. It wasn’t planned but that just seems to be how my life is and I like to think its more fun that way so we couldn’t be happier. I found out  in March 2015 that it is going to be a BOY!  I actually just made my famous social media announcement. I was pretty excited about this idea and everyone thought it was adorable. My husband did a great job keeping my daughter calm behind the scenes so I could take the photo and it turned out great.

We are going to be busy, busy parents and I can’t wait to share all my experiences and stories along the way with you. So heres to another busy, crazy year with many more to come and I couldn’t be happier about it! CHEERS!
